Sparkling Elderberry Elixir Punch

Our sparkling Elderberry Elixir Punch pairs perfectly with the smooth and spicy notes of rum. It’s slightly sweet with just enough bubbles to make every sip of this refreshing punch a cocktail to remember.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are “good” bacteria. They are live microorganisms similar to the ones already living in your gut and may offer health benefits when consumed in adequate amounts.

The word “probiotic” itself is often translated to “beneficial for life.”  It is a derived from the Latin word “pro” meaning “for” and the Greek word “biotic” meaning “life.”

Breaking down the “microbiome”

The microbiome consists of microbes, or microorganisms, that live and colonize on everything from people, plants, the soil, animals, the oceans, etc. These microorganisms can affect us negatively like those nasty viruses that get you sick, but they can also be beneficial, like the probiotics found in kefir.

The human microbiome has many functions, such as helping us absorb nutrients from our food and protecting us against pathogens.

What do probiotics do?

Probiotics can help balance the microbiome by replenishing the good bacteria, which may lead to improved digestion and better immunity.
